    If the environment and the community are healthy it keeps my family healthy. But it is up to me to help keep the community and the environment healthy.

    I've been bagging at the car. I've been paying more attention to packaging and choosing less plastic.

    Trying to do my best to help the earth. Great idea about bagging at the car.

    Changed what I bought at the store for less packaged items and got paper bags. They won't let us bring our own because of covid.

      I have been bagging at my car since this started.  A little less comfortable with the heat, but still doable if you have a game plan!

      If you'd like to avoid disposable bags altogether, consider bagging your purchases at your vehicle instead of in the store.
